The abayah was worn in ancient Isreal and remains a part of traditional Middle Eastern clothing today. Our abayahs are made in the traditional, simple pattern with large sleeve openings.
The abayah consists of a rectangular piece of woolen or linen cloth, sewed together so that the front and the two openings on the sides for the arms are unstitched. Like the fellah of to-day, so the poor Israelite of ancient times wrapped himself in this garment at night to keep warm (Ex. xxii. 26; Deut. xxiv. 13).
Our abayahs are made from cotton or cotton blend fabric. They are 54 to 59 inches across, depending on the width of the fabric.
One size fits everyone and is traditionally worn with a Wide Sash
